Practical Magic: Cosmologies

Since magic is frequently expressed as being the control of subtle energies by the influence of will, the first thing a person must determine is what exactly is the nature of the universe that they are trying to influence? This model of the universe is commonly referred to as a cosmology.

For many years now, I have been studying and practicing a form of Hermetic Magic as it was practiced in ancient Greece, ancient Egypt and throughout the Hellenic world (as near as my researches can determine). To see a detailed explanation of my research and my beliefs on cosmology, refer to http://duttond.topcities.com/Hellenic/Hermetic_Cosmology.pdf

So for those of you who believe and practice magic:

1) What is the cosmology you use to explain how magic works?

2) What does your cosmology say about the relationship between magic and religion? How do you approach and deal with that?

3) What does your cosmology say about death and any sort of afterlife? How does this effect your goals in life?

4) How does your cosmology define love and soul mates (if it does)?

Keep in mind that there are no right and wrong answers as long as you give some thought to what you, yourself believe.
